• For decades, the treatment of British veterans has been a subject of widespread criticism and scrutiny. Despite concerted efforts to address this issue, the experiences of Commonwealth citizens leaving the Forces today remain alarmingly unchanged, a stark reminder of the enduring challenges they face. Over 100,000 Commonwealth veterans, including the valiant Gurkhas and those from Hong Kong, have chosen to make the United Kingdom their home, residing here with their families. Yet, in a profound injustice, each individual has been compelled to pay for the right to serve and the privilege of becoming a British citizen. This reality starkly contrasts the unwavering dedication and sacrifices made by these men and women, who have risked their lives to defend our nation. It is a sobering testament to the fact that, despite the passage of eight decades, their experiences have not significantly improved. We must confront this harsh truth and acknowledge our debt to these brave individuals. Their service, sacrifices, and unwavering commitment to our nation demand far more than the indignity of having to purchase their right to belong.
